I had trouble using navy in my outfits for a number of years, as I always found it too dark and dull when I tried to use it as a color. I've became very fond of it over the past several months, ever since I realized I could use it as a neutral, essentially a softer form of black that is more compatible with my coloring.
In a number of earlier posts, 1, 2, 3, I used red as the highlight color in predominantly navy and white (or offwhite) outfits. I decided to omit the highlight this time, going for a more subdued look which nevertheless has its own appeal.
Though nowadays, my hair may be red highlight enough for any outfit.
